done the work that, okay, i have. let me put it this way. nobody wants to miss a rally. you sold every stock you own right before you jumped, you'd feel like an idiot, a loser, a stooge. not even larry, moe, let's face it, that's shemply. let's look at it another way. you're in stocks for the rally and you have massive gains but you don't do anything. you just let them ride. and then gradually, your stocks come back down. perhaps back to the price before the rally or maybe even lower. how many times has that happened in the last decade? if you hang on for too long, if you let your gains ride until they evaporate, you might as well have missed the rally entirely. you have made nothing and you have to hold on to a whole bunch of stocks, not deserving of your ownership. making lots of money on great day or a great month or a great year is wonderful. it's why many of you are in this game.
